Two men were arrested by Pune police for the murder of a woman whose body was found in a canal near Annasaheb Magar stadium on October 1. The deceased woman, identified as Pramila Vinod Jaiswar (25), was married to one of the two arrested men. The two were identified as Vinod alias Rohit Mangruram Jaiswar alias Gautam (30) and his brother Rajan Mangruram Jaiswar (22).
A case under Sections 302 and 201 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) was registered at Pimpri police station after the woman’s postmortem report from Yashwantrao Chavan Memorial hospital claimed that she died due to a head injury. The police also claimed that Rohit Jaiswar killed his father-in-law Khajansingh Munnar Gautum (70), on September 5, over two weeks before he killed his wife, in Azamgadh area of Uttar Pradesh.
The man told the police that his wife did not listen to him and asked him to not send money to his parents. He also told the police that her father was encouraging her, which also enraged him.
“The rotting body of the woman was found wrapped till the neck in a ruck sack while the face was wrapped in a plastic sack. The woman’s husband had allegedly hit her on the head. She was found wearing a red saree, nose-ring, necklace and anklets. It was the registration mark on the anklets that helped us find a lead,” said senior police inspector VV Mugalikar of Pimpri police station.
The police were observing Rajan Jaiswar’s movements for a few days before they learned that his brother was coming to visit him in Bhagat Vasti area in Bhosari, Pune where he was living with his friends. While the police were setting a trap for the Jaiswar brothers, Pramila’s cousin identified her body to be hers.
The couple got married in 2008 and were living in a rented house in Yashwantnagar for the past eight years, according to the police. While two of their children were not in Pune, Jaiswar asked his brother to look after their youngest child who was with the couple at the time, the two told the police.
The man took the deceased woman to the steel shop, where he was employed, at around 9:30 pm on September 24. He killed her in the shop by hitting her head and had his brother help him dispose the body, the police said.
After the 30-year-old husband killed the woman, his brother helped him put it in the two sacks and dispose it in the canal, the police said. In 2014, the woman had filed a case of domestic violence against the arrested man, senior PI Mugalikar said. Even though Rohit was arrested in the case, the matter was settled and they started living together along with their three children, according to the police.
“The policemen’s connection with the residents in their jurisdiction, Yashwantnagar in this case, helped us find that a family from Uttar Pradesh had left on the day the body was found. The man had told the landlord that he had sent his wife to their village a few days before he left,” Srikant Shinde, additional commissioner of police, North region said.
